25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

The Most Wearable Nail Trends from NYFW Fall 2013


There was a lot of nail art at New York Fashion Fall 2013. Nail art is most popular on the west coast and has been gradually making it's way east. After many celebrities including Kelly Osbourne and Anne Hathaway sported the nail trend on the red carpet these past few months, the trend has exploded. It's no surprise it was all over the runway during fashion week and will continue to be a huge nail trend for 2013 and will last into the fall and winter months.

For those of us who can't get into the nail art (like me), there are some much more wearable nail trends for 2013. Designer Phillip Lim featured a glossy winter white, while others had their models wearing muted tones of grey, olive, and nude. Black was also a popular nail color on the runway; the main difference in the previously trendy color being a textured or matte finish. Proving that oxblood ( a deep shade of red) will be a color trend lasting into Fall, Zac Posen and Danijo featured glossy oxblood nails. Several other designers went with classic red nails, including Badgley Micshka, who debuted Deborah Lippmann's red metallic shade with a matte finish called "Red Silk Boxers" (pictured bottom left) to be a part of her 2013 holiday collection.

Whenever new trends in nail color come out, I tend to save money by mixing my pre-existing colors. Create your own oxblood shade by adding a few drops of black to a classic glossy red polish. You can achieve the popular matte finish on any of your favorite shades with the Lippmann Collection Flat Top the Matte-Maker Top Coat Nail Polish.
